The movements contain similar elements to those found in yoga. As a perfect complement to Pilates, Gyrotonics is holistic in nature, linking the breath, mind and emotions. It promotes a tremendous sense of well-being, delivering increased energy, greater mind-body awareness, long, lean muscles, improved posture and a strong core. The Gyrotonic Method consists of low-impact exercises that are highly beneficial for the elderly, pre and post-natal women and those recovering from injuries.
